MINI + Airstream

What’s cuter than a Mini?

How’s about a Mini pulling an Airstream trailer? It’s not a total fantasy- although it’s not available Stateside. Last week BMW unveiled its “mobile living” concept at the Salone del Mobile in Milano.

Here’s what BMW’s press release says about it:

The collaboration was underpinned by a passion for design and an eye for detail shared by all three brands. Mobility and the interaction with nature provided a twin-pronged focus for their endeavours. The world of watersports and the yearning of surfers for absolute freedom and harmony with their surroundings offered the perfect inspiration for the design study.”

Okay, so that must be German for “It’s cute.”

In addition to modifying the Mini Cooper S Clubman to haul a caravan (that’s Yurrup for trailer), the Airstream was extensively tweaked by fashionista Fritz Hansen. The result is a trendy trailer with modern furnishings and a motorized wall that tilts out. My favorite detail is the shelving made from surfboards.

Pretty cool travel accessory.
